You Were Born
A Birthday Cake
is No Ordinary Cake
On the Day You Were Born is considered a modern children’s classic. The lyric text welcomes each child to the every day miracles of planet Earth — sun, moon, rain, tides, North Star, and the circle of people awaiting each child.
Special ingredients required! For this recipe you will need 365 sunrises, a robin's song, plenty of shade, 2 crisp leaves, and a few shivers in this celebration of each circle around the Sun. A birthday story for any age.
Both books are by author/illustrator Debra Frasier.
